About Orangutan Camp Leakey:
Orangutans are large, intelligent great apes with medium long orange-brown fur, large heads and sturdy bodies, long arms, short bowed legs, and no tails. Their hands are similar to human hands with four long fingers and a thumb. Orangutans walk on legs and arms, but are able to stand and walk short distances on two legs. Both types of orangutans live in the tropical rainforest of Asia; one type on the island of Borneo and the other on Sumatra.

Both orangutan species are endangered. Orangutans are a special type of primate called a great ape. They stand 1.5m tall at the shoulder (when on two legs). Orangutans, sometimes just called orangs, are the largest arboreal mammals. They love it in the trees, and spend most of their lives high above the floor of the rainforest.

Endangered orangutans live in a few isolated lowland tropical rainforests on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo. There are between 12-15,000 Bornean orangutans and less than 3,500 of the much rarer Bukit Lawang Sumatran orangutans. Both live in old tropical rainforests with a lush dense growth of dipterocarp and other tropical trees, at elevations up to 1,000m. Hot temperatures, daily rains, and humid conditions characterize these tropical rainforests throughout much of the year.
